    Kayak on the Lake and the Triple Irish Chain.

    My dd is getting the first--she wanted unsymmetrical swirls to represent paddles dipping in the water. I think Jill found the perfect pattern for that.

    For the Triple, I wanted calm--and nothing is more calming than the outdoors/nature to me, so I picked a leaves design, but asked her to leave out all the quilting inside the leaves so nothing was tight. She knows what I like-no close quilting. I love it.

    Binding for Kayak will match the border. I'm undecided on the Triple... there's really only a few choices: blue or green. :roll:

    Thanks for looking.

    Ooops--I should have removed the thread and lint.

    Nine flannels make the back (dd always requests flannel backs).

    I didn't quilt them!! The quilter did!! :-D Her pricing makes it so worth it to not have to do this myself--$144 total for both!

    Remember my style? I use paper with a traced on designs and only attempt to mess up baby size tops and wall hangings. :lol:

    They're beautiful- I love the fabric choices in both (probably because they're my favorite color combinations!). You're lucky to find such a great quilter who is so reasonable too!

    Yes--I emailed these photos to my daughter and she loved it. :-D I let my quilter know. The story behind it is so personal--I didn't want to sell it, but didn't need another quilt. So, I'm very happy/grateful Rach loves it, wants it AND understands the story.

    My husband has a kayak, and I have two--one for when he's with me (longer and heavier) and one for when I paddle alone (shorter and lighter :wink: ). Rachel has come with us and used one of mine. She was with us the day I took photos for some research for this top. I posted them last year. She said she doesn't need the quilt now because she has at least three already in her house at college and two home, so I said I'll save it for when she's ready. It has a home. :-D

    Beautiful! I've been wondering how I will quilt my TIC when I finally get it done, and this gives me some great ideas. Thank you for sharing.
